3:08 am
sewage coming to the treatment plant. the plant observed a underwriter of their movrpt system. basically this monitoring system as name suggests monitors the low objection didn't even and other potential hazardous gas. it required immediate repairs to mitigate the risks for the treatment plant and protect the health and safety of the plant operations and also insure osha and and it is to be awarded to the construction in the amount to exceed $225,000. the reason for the m k working

3:11 am
muni facility. the current agreement is for a denomination for the electrical grid for the life to exceed 10 years. the agreement doesn't require any costs by the city the pg&e and puc ask you approve this agreements >> any questions? okay. we don't have a budget analyst report. any any public comment? seeing none, public comment is closed. >> okay. can i get a motion. >> this is a resolution to direct the property to be sold square feet for the development rights from the memorial rights and to convict this for action
3:12 am
necessary for have the corners in the signing code. >> thank you. we have mr. updyke to speak on this item >> good morning supervisor farrell and supervisor avalos. we're seeking authority to sell up to 1.1 million from a city property that's located at the thirty 1 to 401 van ness. i will walk you through this. it's unused historical rights from the significant guess so that can be transferred from sale in order to develop the developers floor area on their property. it could be directly from a
3:13 am
donor site. for a victor to walk i threw the t dr site. the donor site will not be improved in the future so there's a volume of the site that won't be upgraded. the t dr can sell it the folks find a small footprint but entitlement for height that they can't get to because of floor area ratio. so the t dr allows the developer to maximumize their height. this is a picture of how that
3:14 am
can happen. t dr can only come from 3-ds sites or if the code was replaced for the c-3 zone districts >> so this has been an opportunity that's afford to the city since 2004 not graufl used from the city. t dr can u be used to increase the areas or for the prestige districts. heersz a map of what t dr can be used. as you see it's focused in the financial district not surprisingly and along the market street corridor again not spiraling where we have small footprint particles. then difficulties for the
3:15 am
developers to get to the height limitations. so i want to make it clear the t dr process in no way trumpets the process. the t dr allows the developer to maximize to their sgiements e entitlements. the proceeds of the sales >> can i stop you real quick on on my question and thanks for speaking will be the item. the concept will have taller skinnier building but this won't trump many part of the process but given f this is a newer practice i'm curious as your
3:16 am
thoughts if a developer purchases those t dr can they use one hundred percent of the t dr rights in the building therefore the commission has a hard time saying you can't use the full amount of that? >> if the receding sites has the entitlements in police radios to produce that volume of development i'm not sure there's a process that could prevent that from happening outside of the normal sequa or euro process that the developer would be going so there. it's sort of a maybe >> they would only purchase those after the entitlements so how could they get the entitlements to a building if they're limited.
3:17 am
>> well by right they have certain height and bulk restrictions. so your question might be more to the point of development factors that still are an entitlement and review process >> right. >> that's continued. >> i guess the answer is because this is somewhat of an unused process and i understand the policy behind it i agree with it. but it's untested yet if a developer you know how that kind of entitlement proposals works afterward and how did he people are seeing how the developer pays for one hundred percent of the t dr >> what's been tested is the city entering this market. t dr is not an untested produce.
3:18 am
we see the t g r energized developments. most current is the transbay project where the t dr facilitated maximumizing the project. we see about one hundred foot for the marketplace. it's one hundred thousand it's variable based on the market kindly but that gives a sense of traction load out in the community >> thank you. >> sure. i was mentioning the proceeds they're required to go back into the donor site it has intoxicate a restoration or other project it's very clear what the project is that goes to the part of the
3:19 am
certification 0 process. as you know, we anticipate budget challenges as we're dealing with the rising cost market and the unforeseen conditions that are typical on any historic preservation but to an extreme discovery. so therefore it was felt this would be an ideal property to kick start our foyer into the project. we know we have a project and a budget challenge this is an opportunity to secure revenue on a prosperity. we know we're not going to change in terms of what's on that site. so or so evasion efforts that's in the legislation to set a minimum acceptable t dr price and that's $25 a square feet.
3:20 am
we have robust requirements built into the legislation come back to let capital planning committee and this committee on a quarterly basis to continue to keep you advised to the pace of the process or lack thereof. and then based on the recommendation from the budget analyst we've put into the board foil an amended form of legislation which also includes the reauthorization of the midway point of sales. so this requires us to return to this body and the board when we're approaching the 2 hundred and 50 square feet of the board. to check into the marketplace and continue to the second half. i really see this memorial project as a pilot. the city has a potential for t dr but we need to take care how
3:21 am
we enter the market because we have you such a great volume of t d railroad. much of that is coming from a report it was produced this summer lead by a city capital and planning took the lead in putting a consultant team to be looked at the t dr markets to understand it's dynamics and this legislation reflects the concerns that were expresses in that report. a cell of t dr has to be prepared to act on a market opportunity. this is by its nature a reactive program. i usually come to i with a transaction in another party and you know what the price it going to be. this is exceptional we're selling anything to unknown
3:22 am
parties elsewhere. it's to enhance the memorials restoration project. that's why we're seeking a one-time authority so we can very quickly strike. we'll bring you back to earlier and in the spring of 2013 when hyperglycemias needed t dr remaining increment that he they approached the city and we try to move as as quickly as possible to sell the t dr but we were not able to act fast enough. literally the weekend they struck a deal to secure the t dr at the same price from the city. that lost opportunity focused our team so we want to structure
3:23 am
a program that's reactive enough. the planning committee approved the plan. i'm joined by elizabeth and others from t p w and a supervisor >> i want to thank beth murphy for being here and walking to the $154 million project and thank you, mr. updike for the simmer reports. i have a question i know that other historic preservation advocates how are they involved in the process in the summer report in the t dr that's a question >> i'm not sure exactly of the
3:24 am
outreach that the consulting team did but i know they interviewed a number of stakeholders on both sides of this issue. one concern is development but the the other is the city entering the marketplace as a seller and other competitions to facilitate their restoration. and so in that respect there's some choices that need to be made so we move forward cautiously so we don't influence that market to a great degree. there's competition in a marketplace. there's legitimate questions raised by those who want to sell t dr they have flexibility and we have set a floor on pricing
3:25 am
that's firm. there are avenues who can be explored for development rights to sell. the public nature of the discussion has been at the capital planning committee and, of course, this process today and a could you comment on the budget analysts recommendation amending tow cutting it down to 5 hundred and 50 thousand gross square foot and come back to the board >> all right. supervisor we're comfortable with the 1.1 million square feet of the t dr to the planning department but a reauthorization for 5 hundred and 50 thousand square feet so the amended documents are in the file if you choose to accept the recommendation we're comfortable with it. >> okay. if no other questions
3:26 am
we'll move mr. rose to our report and break after this item. >> mr. chair and members of the committee on the bottom of the page we report that the number of t dr traktsdz can't be specified. to sell 1 hundred 1 million square feet can't be estimated. in addition the 1 million square feet plus can't be determined therefore the timing of the t dr procedures to be realized can't be calculated at this time. on page 10 of the report the net procedures of up to $1 million square feet plus would be used psychologically for the memorial complex but that is subject to the approval of the board of supervisors. so our recommendation 0 a that's
3:27 am
been stated here today obtain page 11 of the report we recommend you amended the proposed so the 12krishgd property will be submitted to the board of supervisors and immediately upon reaching the sales of $50 million square feet to adjust the sales price and a recommend you accept the proposed remedies as amended >> thank you, mr. rose. we'll open this up for public comment anybody wish to comment on this particular item? >> supervisors i'm a historic he prestige speciality. i've been involved a number of years. i'm really concerned about this.
3:28 am
i did not know about this until sunday afternoon and i spent a lot of time in the clerk's office yesterday. i appreciate mr. roses report. i'm deeply concerned about the 2 hundred plus million. that's the same amount left out there from individuals that haven't sold. the mayor's office of economic development has 5 hundred thousands of those that they have not be able to put on the market yet. i'm concerned there's a lot of latitude given to the city attorney's. last year the planning code when it was revised there are wasn't
3:29 am
a change instituted that allowed for the report on highway t drs are going. but i'd like to hear from the planning department what they know. i know that supervisor kim has legislation working through you - may i continue, please and you have 30 seconds left >> with respect to st. bonding vascular and old st. marys is going to be flrd. i don't know how many t dr just to the veterans building. when the mint got the right to sell the t drs other public buildings could do that if they - okay. thank you very much ma'am, >> at the. appreciate it. anyone else left for
3:30 am
comment? seeing none, public comment is closed. supervisor mar. >> i wanted to say based on what ms. plat is saying can we continue this until the next meeting so ms. platt and other other folks could add to this. >> we're actually now right on time for a contempt for the swearing in so i'm going to ask in the middle of this a recess. we'll come back. so can i have a motion for a recess >> actually, i think it's reasonable to get more information to continue until next week then we'll go into recess
